Heart Month

2022 Cause

The Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute (the Maz) is one of North America’s leading heart institutes, performing over 5000 potentially life-saving procedures every year on some of the most desperately sick people across western and northern Canada – but only when doctors can see what they’re doing.   

Your support of Heart Month 2022 ensured doctors at the Maz will continue to have the best cardiac monitoring equipment at their fingertips.

Cardiac Monitoring Systems

Hemodynamic cardiac monitoring systems provide valuable clinical information about a patient’s cardiac anatomy and function, and the precise measurements needed to diagnose and care for the most serious cardiac conditions.  

Your generous support of the 2022 Heart Month ensured that doctors at the Maz will continue to have the best cardiac monitoring equipment at their fingertips by helping to purchase four Philips 100751 XPER Flex Cardiac monitoring systems to support the program requirements. 

Why support the maz?

Innovation takes time. Heart disease takes time away. Your support will enable some of the best and brightest minds in cardiac care – our innovators – to find new ways to treat patients through:

Research – using machine learning and artificial intelligence, our researchers will soon be able to predict the future for their patients.
Surgery – surgeons can now repair heart valves through an incision smaller than your baby finger. What’s next? Stay tuned.
Diagnostics – the best cardiac care begins with the most accurate, and fastest, diagnostic equipment and technology.

Brad's VAD

Brad Smoliak, a renowned local chef and owner of restaurant KITCHEN by Brad, is also the proud owner of a VAD – a mechanical heart. And he’s made it his goal to give back to the care teams at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute who are saving his life.
